Will your filter remove harmful substances (such as lead) from the water?


Yes, for homes with high level of sediment (rust, sand ect.) we recommend our double or triple housing filters. These filters include sediment pre-filters, which are designed to remove particulate such as rust and sand.

Our filters are also designed to remove heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and aluminum from the water by an electrochemical process. Much as a magnet they are attracted to the media.

What is the difference between sediment filters and drinking water filters?


Sediment filters are useful for rural areas and commercial applications. They remove rust sand and other particles from the water. Drinking water filters remove odors and chlorine. They make you water smell and taste a lot better.

How do I know that your replacement cartridge will fit my existing filter?

Why would I need a shower filter?

Studies have shown that you absorb more chlorine in one shower than what you typically drink in all day. Chlorine makes you skin dry and flaky. It can make your hair dry and brittle, and ruin coloring and permanents.
